Germany Frozen Food Market Trends:

 Expanding Production Capabilities Through Advancements and New Units
Advancements in freezing technology enhance product quality by preserving nutritional value, texture, and taste. Innovations like rapid freezing and individually quick-frozen (IQF) methods reduce ice crystal formation, preventing cellular damage in food. These technologies also extend shelf life and improve convenience, catering to the growing consumer demand for high-quality, ready-to-eat meals. As a result, improved freezing techniques are boosting consumer confidence, increasing the popularity of frozen food in Germany, and accelerating imports and exports. For instance, in 2021, Germany ranked 15th for frozen food imports with $340 million and 15th for frozen food exports with $90 million. German frozen vegetable imports had a total value of €598 million, or 20% of the European market, in 2021. Moreover, in the same year, Germany imported 90% of its frozen vegetables from other European countries and 10% from developing countries. Moreover, companies are expanding their manufacturing facilities to cater to the increasing demand for frozen food products in the country. For instance, in April 2023, Nestlé and private equity firm PAI Partners have agreed to establish a joint venture for Nestlé's frozen pizza business in Europe, creating a focused entity in this competitive and dynamic category. Nestlé will hold a non-controlling stake with equal voting rights alongside PAI Partners. The transaction, pending employee consultations and regulatory approval, is expected to close in the second half of 2023. Financial details have not been disclosed.

Demand for RTE Foods by Consumers

The market for frozen food in Germany is extensive and expanding, driven by consumers seeking convenient and high-quality meal solutions. The new generation, increasingly engaged in daily activities, often lacks time for meal preparation, which is fueling the growth of the frozen food sector. According to DTI, per capita consumption rose to 47.7 kg in 2022, while household consumption increased by 4.1 kg, reaching 96.4 kg in 2022. Total sales of frozen food surged by 3.6% to 3.909 million tons in 2022, surpassing the previous record set in 2019 by 2%. These products are preferred for their long shelf life, ease of preparation, and preserved nutritional value, contributing to their growing popularity among consumers.
